What are the most common juvenile violent crimes?

While we all want the best for our children, the fact is that sometimes our children find themselves in less than ideal situations, and on occasion that can lead to a violent crime. At times, they may just be in the wrong place at the wrong time. They may be hanging out with friends who are likely to commit crimes. Or they may not have had the proper upbringing to understand the difference between right and wrong. Whatever the case may be, it still happens. Although violent crimes among juveniles is far less than adults, it is still prevalent.

In 2014, there were over sixty-one thousand violent crimes committed by juveniles in the United States. This includes over 600 cases of murder, nearly two thousand cases of forcible rape, as well as nearly twenty-three thousand cases of robbery and over thirty-five thousand cases of assault.

A youth facing serious juvenile crimes has everything to gain by doing whatever is necessary to fight the charges. Partnering up with a strong criminal defense team can make quite a difference. They can examine and analyze both evidence and the police's procedure looking for errors or mistakes. They could also work with prosecutors in an effort to negotiate a plea bargain. Or, they may simply use all the evidence in the case to fight for their defendant in court.

With a youth's possible life on the line, including substantial time in prison and a criminal record that could follow someone for years or even decades, it is important to take the situation seriously, and do whatever is possible to protect your rights and your future.
